Hypotension Nursing Care Plan



Ref: CP095

Hypotension Nursing Care Plan

Low blood pressure or hypotension means a low pressure in the arteries. When the flow of blood is too low to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to vital organs such as the brain, heart, and kidney, the organs do not function normally and may be temporarily or permanently damaged.

Hypotension can cause fainting or feeling dizzy but the condition hardly ever shows any signs and symptoms and can go undetected. Naturally low blood pressure does not usually need to be treated unless it is causing symptoms such as dizziness, unsteadiness, fainting, or recurrent falls.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
